Vive l’Empereur meets its maker
Celebrating a new acquisition for the Gallery
Join us for a special lecture by the Art Gallery of NSW’s senior curator European art Richard Beresford as he talks about Basile Lemeunier’s 1891 painting, Portrait of Édouard Detaille.
This new acquisition has been funded by our members organisation, the Art Gallery Society of NSW.
Richard will tell the extraordinary story of discovering this painting which is a perfect companion to Edouard Detaille’s Vive L’Empereur – one of the most-loved works in the Gallery.
The talk will be followed by celebratory drinks.
